WIP - Details -

A LITTLE NOTE AND SOME INFO - I've had several people ask how I got the black so black, I actually get this question all the time, so I thought if I did it in a video it might be a good idea :) The video isn't the best, but you can see what's going on, it was a livestream so it stops and starts a little bit :( I'm redrawing part of the left side glove. The pencils I used were, in this order, 2H, 2B, 4B and 6B.

...Holy balls. Daily Deviation...

Oh my, my 16th birthday is coming up in a month and a half, and this was the first big drawing I had finished in about 5 months time! I should get to work on more stuff before July rolls around...

A big shout out to all of those dedicated watchers who kept up with this WIP. This took in total about 5 months, probably 80+ hours of work. I've never spent this long on a single drawing before, and I'm just kind of shocked that I actually finished it at this point.

This picture was drawn from the awesome gallery of :iconmalvina-frolova:, and here is the picture I referenced off of: malvina-frolova.deviantart.com… Check out the rest of her gallery, it is beautiful! :heart: The model of the photo is the gorgeous :iconbloodstonished: !!

Ah, success.

Graphite on Bristol board 19x19"

Also, this is my other big drawing I did for my amazing friend Vlad! I did his portrait in January, then started to work on the Freckles drawing! => elvis882.deviantart.com/art/Vl…

Here is a picture of me holding the drawing, so you can see how big it is! Lol! => i50.tinypic.com/2l901ef.jpg

Thank you sooooo much for all of your comments/faves on this! I logged onto dA and I had like 1,700 messages overnight!! I appreciate this support so much, and I'll try to reply to all of your comments! :hug: :dalove:

Ok guys I'm not gonna submit a print of this cause it's not my original photo, I just drew it. The photo itself is not copyright to me so i will not sell something that is not originally mine.

I started this before the "Michael Sword" revelation,
so now it's even more relevant. Normally I think portraying a
character as an angel is totally clichéd, but the Winchesters
have always had that religion/faith connection, as well as
protecting people, often without their knowledge or thanks.

Since I decided to make posters out of this one, I edited it
in photoshop to fill in the black expanses, just in case my
shading didn't quite cut it. This is the only time I've done
that! I normally retouch graphite drawings to fix whatever
the scanner's butchered, but I don't paint over my shading.
Just so you know.

"I have searched for
A reason to go on
I've tried and I've tried
But it's taking me so long

I might be better off
Closing my eyes
And God will come looking for me
In time

All of this dust
All of this past
All of this over and gone
And never coming back
All of this forgotten
Not by me..."
- Sarah Bettens

I wanted to draw Jensen over and over. So I did. This picspam was perfect. No use trying to improve on it, so I just copied the whole thing. Full credit to nutkin (and CW) for the refs.

It's enough to drive you crazy; the contrast between how sharp and scratchy his stubble looks, and how smooth and soft his lips look (except for when I really wanna hand the guy my chapstick).

Edit: bigger file so you can see the "details" (scribbles) in the top panel better. I don't normally upload stuff this big.
Sure, you can see the details, but you can see the flaws, too. :invisible:

Dedicated to `Cataclysm-X, just 'cause.

Finished this way sooner than I thought I would, but that's 'cause the first panel took a bazillion years longer than the other two.

Fanart (kind of) for the TV miniseries Kingdom Hospital (the Stephen King remake). They're images from the beautiful title sequence.
Part 2 will be another A4 page with three more images. They wouldn't all fit on one page without missing most of the details.

"End of, stop sulking
Get out, you're walkin'
Too bad, I've spoken
But when I look at you you're forgiven

Your lies, don't want 'em
Drop dead, not joking
This thing is broken
But when I look at you you're forgiven
You're forgiven

I know my ex-boyfriend lies
Oh he does it every time
It's just his permanent disguise
Yeah, yeah, but he's drop dead gorgeous..."

:star: TIP: If you go over any shading with a slightly blunt
4H pencil, pressing reasonably hard, it'll cover all white spots
and subtly even out tones, without giving the blurry effect of a
blending stump. That's why the background looks noisy
and photographic instead of just drawn.

~
The fuck did I even choose such a pain in the butt
reference for. Oh yeah, I remember now. I chose
it 'cause if I could pull it off, it'd be badass.

I didn't use an eraser. I have a couple favourite
erasers I use for mistakes. But I never use erasers
to actually draw with. I always draw around
highlights. Takes longer, but I think it generally
looks better.

“Afterflood” Pencil on acid free Illustration Board 40” x 30”

This almost kicked my ass, I started it in early April completed it the last day of August.

In the area where I live there is a flood plain, every spring these trees are by and large underwater. I came upon this place when the waters receded- I was blown away by the complex movements of line; limbs, branches, twigs and brambles that seemed to be hanging on for dear life. Because it was this complex I had to draw it, the composition was inspired by one of my heroes Franz Kline, often abstraction is the catalyst to my compositions, my previous drawing being inspired by Pollock. The unexpected difficulty in drawing thousands of branches weaving over and under, lost lines, found lines and keeping track of all of it was a bit crazy, but rather Zen at the same time. I worked form life, photos and pieces of twigs that I collected it was quite the journey. After almost eight months on trees I’m off to do a portrait, can't wait.

:iconimaginee:
Hi there, I only snapped 3 wip images of the Depp portrait and here they are. I start with a one inch grid, draw in a detailed outline and then starting from the top left I work my way to the bottom right. I work slowly and go over many areas till they look right, drawing in as much details as I can to make the drawing have a realistic look to it. The Vellum Bristol is great because it has a slight texture to it, this makes for realistic skin. I used a 2b mechanical pencil for most of the portrait, a 3b for large dark areas and a H for lighter areas, tissue to blend large areas and blending sticks for smaller.

I will be uploading a couple of close ups of this one in a moment.
Thanks for looking ~Linda

I worked every day an hour on Taylor Swift. She's sooooo beautiful:D, it's always really nice to draw her! I also love colours so I drew the flower with colour pencils.

I can't believe that its almost 2010! I started to draw realistic 3 months ago and I haven't stopped since. I never thought that I would draw so much in 3 months :XD: lol, I never like my own drawings but I really like doing it!

:star: I used:
B, 3b and HB pencils.
Tissues
And colour pencils for the flower

Anyway I hope you like my Taylor Swift drawing and Merry Christmas to everyone!!!!!!! :heart::santa:

This was a hard drawing for me which took a long time to finish. Ref picture was so detailed and I'm not used to drawing so detailed drawings. Some parts were too hard for my current skill set so I had to improvise a little.

I used one of beautiful ~FurtiveLungs' :hug: self portraits as ref, but I changed her look and some other things.

Like with my Blade drawing, I wanted to practice drawing in much darker tones + this was some sort of a little experiment. I drew this drawing on fine grain paper, no blending. There are some smaller flaws I'll correct later.

Please wish me luck with my next drawing which will have 4 pairs of eyes, no mouth. :D Now you can wonder what I'm planning to draw. :evillaugh: It will be much more detailed than usual, I hope. Ref for this one is some perfume or jewelery ad, I think.

I completed this around a month ago; I’m not really sure why I didn’t upload it sooner. I haven’t played much of the assassins creed series... this was drawn as a present for my 14 year old cousin.

I got through a few audio books and documentaries while drawing this which gives an indication of the amount of time it took to complete (A lot of audio books are at least 9 hours long). The books included 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep', 'A Brave New World', 'The God Delusion' and more.

This is also the first drawing I have attempted on A3 paper as I usually draw on A4 size. I think perhaps I will use A3 more often.

Thanks a lot for looking =)

Finished at last.

A dark-ish drawing of Matt Bellamy from Muse (obviously).
I'm HEAVILY addicted to Muse in case you haven't noticed yet :lol: I feel like repeating myself, but it is true.



Spent over 75 hours on this drawing, which isn't bigger than 20x15 cm (A5 size, twice as small as most of my drawings / standard printing paper).

This scan is larger than the original.



I have struggled during almost the ENTIRE PROCESS. For those who have drawn Matt Bellamy before, know how hard it is to portray this guy. I think it has to do with strong facial features which show little and obvious contours. So don't blame yourself if you can't manage to draw him for the 1st, 2nd or, in my case, 200th time. :thumbsup:

Got most of the skintexture done, but in the end I blended most of it so you get that softer/lens blurred effect.



Background shows the cover of my favourite Muse album, Origin of Symmetry, while the title Darkshines is my favourite song of theirs.



Stuff used:
- 0.3mm (2H, H, HB, B) mechanical pencils
- 0.5mm (4H, 2H, H, HB, B, 2B, 3B) mechanical pencils
- 3B & 6B regular pencils for the (near) black parts.
- blending done with: tissues, cotton pads. tortillions and Q-tips.
- Colouring done with Photoshop CS5.
- 2 references used

75 hours of work


Time for some sleep :yawn:
